Today we hiked the Wildwood trail from the intersection of the Garden Trail by the Japanese Garden to the Zoo in Washington Park. It was a beautiful foggy fall hike, mostly downhill. As you get closer to the Zoo there are many intersecting trails at the Vietnam Memorial, Holocaust Memorial & Hoyt Arboretum, and each intersection has a well marked sign. A lovely, leisurely hike.

The first 15 miles were cake, the next 11.2 were worth it and last part was brutal! Good luck, make sure you have enough water. I’m going to go back to looking up crutches online.

My boyfriend and I hiked from the connector Garden Trail at the Japanese Garden to Wildwood heading toward Pittock Mansion. We wanted to see the new Barbara Walker Crossing pedestrian bridge over West Burnside. You hike through Hoyt Arboretum to get to the bridge. For us it was a lovely Autumn day & we enjoyed a leisurely stroll.

Great trail, but with the new bridge they removed the road access and Burnside. Now I have to hike an additional half mile and cross traffic to catch the bus.

The section across W. Burnside is now open again after the dedication of the Barbara Walker pedestrian bridge on Oct. 27. No more hazardous crossings!

Another great stretch of wildwood. Quite an incline from a spawn trailhead.

Beautiful trail, with about a half mile stretch closed near Pittock mansion and requires a slight detour. Did the full 30, every part was well kept and well marked, would definitely recommend.

Better take some friends as this trail offers no views, watèfalls or anything except 30 miles on a trail that goes through a nice forest

A bit of a bummer that it didn’t record correctly. The trail I took was a mile out/mile back. It logged me at 1.4 miles.☹️ trail isn’t the softest on the joints but beautiful nonetheless.

I completed the Lower Macleay trail then continued on with this trail. Wasnt able to finish, definitely more moderate level for me than easy like Macleay was. However, was made significantly harder by the weather conditions, very rainy making it very muddy and slippery, to the point that I fell right before the parking section about half way through the trail. Without those conditions, I would've been able finish it, but still beautiful trail moderately challenging overall. Not as accessible as Macleay, would not suggest for anyone with any sort of needed mobility devices or canes/sticks. Lot more rocky, elevation changes, and smaller width trails.
